The Hullory firm, contrarv to aeneml ci

will be found elsewhern, up to nooi to-dnv

well acted in precisely the same manner.
Several new wells are soon io be put down
on this farm.
Although money is n litl In scarce, yet al

Our merchants are kept busily at work fell

shops ars crowded with job work and keep
large number of bunds employed. Tho
oil business is quite lively, and although
oil does not command quite so high a figure
as it did a few wve;g since, operators seem
to think that there will be a "iIsh" after

Tub fi.llow'a,? from the'Enst Brady Inde
pendent l a pr t:y go id description ol the ex
citrmpnlnunding the discovery of oil. It
npplU-s not only to Parker' Landing, but to
other oil towns:
Viewing Parker's Landing at night from
the East side of the river, it presents a
curious and rather exbilerating sight
Lights stream from many windows, crowds
are rushinn to and fro, while the puff, puff
or many engines sonnd strangely In the
midnight a r, the steam from them ascends
among the dark pines over-hanging the
town presents a wild and picturesque scene.
The broad waters of the Allegheny roll oa,
flashing and sparkling as the many lights
Bosh upon the rippling stream. '
The saloons, the concert rooms, the thea
tre, the stores are lull or Idlers, nero and
there you find a group discuseiog oil, the
latest sttlkes, buying or selling, leases, o:
contractin g for work.
Betimes the streets are crowded, some
rushing intent on business some yon will
Bnd reeling under the Influence ol benzine
and acting like mad-men as tbey stagger
along their uncertain way.
Parkpr's, like other oil regions, Is rntd0
up of all classes. There you find the busy(
active and energetic operutor sinking bis
well, fonder a group of speculators ready
to pitch In and make "their pile; then
the merchant with bis goods, occupied
with his customers; the hotels are tilled to
repletion, while gropgeries nud blind drink
ing siloons are visible wherever tho drouth
may lead yon.
Another closs, too, is there. The rowdy,
the gambler, the loafer, find a '-local habi
tation and a name," until their misdeeds
piece tkem io the dutches oPthe law and
society is rid of their undesiruble presence,
when they regain their freedom to prey up
on and insult the community.
With all the evils tbnt follow its produc
tion oil is a great biessln?. It rapidly opens
up avonucs ol wealth to thousands, while to
the masses it gives piofitub:o employment
acd scatters its blessings over a wide lire.
Every class receives advantages from It,
and money that would otherwise remain
useles.i is thrown ont freely and iu.lustry
aud prosperity follow In its train. .
Ti'e wiinesxcd a sad spectacle yesterday
in a barroom op town, which shows what
men will do towards K'nding,even thuir own
children, in the paths of ruin. A man
wboso name we will not mention, but who
resides al Cberrytrec, stepped n; to the
bar and called lor a dunk. Filling b's
glass.wilb wbiaky, ho drank abnul hell' ot
it, aud then guvo the balance to hi little
boy, a child probably about 8 years of age,
who drunk ll off Willi ns much euso appar
ently as an old toper won 1 1. Upon b.-ing
asited by a byslnailer if it would not injure
the b.iy. the father carelessly leplit-d 'Oh!
he's used to it." It tbo father con 1,1 look
forwurd In the years to cmne ami sne the
misery that tniglt po a bly come even from
bis giving tho boy one glass of liquor, we
are sure bis hand would have been staved.
The father th-it thus places temptation iu tt,
way ot bis child may be sum of having the
cutisequeuces visiled upon his own bead.

pumping is gone through with largo quanti
ties of ojl comes to tho surface. Judging from
present indications, when finished this wel'
be ono of Iho largest wells in the oil re
gions. Last night it snowed quite hard and tho
conclusion generally arrived at by all was
that winter had arrived in earnest at lust,
but as Burns says "Pleasures are like pop
pies spread, you seize Ijie flower its bloom is
shed," so it was with tho snow, for during
the night the "rains' descended and the
floods came," nod this morning the snow
had nearly disappeared.
